Murderdolls make fist-pumpin’, panty-droppin’ graveyard rock better than anyone these days.
That sums it all up.
The pairing of Slipknot’s Joey Jordison (guitar, drums, musical mayhem of all kinds) and Wednesdy 13 (vocals, cool hats) is genuinely arena-ready on Women and Children Last, the band’s forthcoming sophomore offering and follow-up to 2002’s Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls. In fact, Women and Children Last sits at a sick crossroads right in between Motley Crue and Rob Zombie, and it’s a pretty awesome place to be. With searing riffs and solos and massive choruses, this may bring more than just the goth chicks back to rock ‘n’ roll… thank God…
Given the band’s penchant for all kinds of horror-influenced subject matter, Bloody-Disgusting.com’s Rick Florino (www.bookofdolor.com) sat down with Joey Jordison and Wednesday 13 in a Hollywood Hills studio to discuss some of their favorite horror flicks for this exclusive feature.
1. Cannibal Ferro
2. Cannibal Holocaust
Joey Jordison: I like a lot of foreign stuff. I love Cannibal Ferro and Cannibal Holocaust!
3. The NEKRomantik
4. The NEKRomantik 2
Joey Jordison: I love the NEKRomantik 1 and 2. I’m a big fan of both of those films. Those are hands down some of the best horror movies. Number 2 has a different girl, and it’s good! That one really fucking caused a storm when it came out. I should’ve brought it down so Wednesday could see it. I’ll bring it back to L.A. next time I go to Iowa!
5. Coffin Joe
Joey Jordison: I love Coffin Joe and Schramm. We have all of the obvious films, but those are some of the more underground movies that I like.
Wednesday 13: That spelling on Schramm doesn’t make any damn sense [Laughs].
Joey Jordison: It doesn’t! That movie’s fucked up. You’ll have to search it out. It’s odd. The kills are horrible [Laughs].
Wednesday 13: I find myself renting more teen movies—love stories these days. It’s actually more angry. I’m moved on past horror. I need more shit to inspire me to be angry [Laughs].
Wednesday 13’s (Murderdolls) Favorite Horror Movies
1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Wednesday 13: I haven’t quoted the stuff I’ve quoted with Joey in years. When we get together, it’s Raising Arizona and the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. We just constantly go back and forth between those.
Joey Jordison: I was quoting The Hitchhiker a minute ago!
2. Nightmare on Elm Street
3. Friday the 13th
Wednesday 13: As far as favorites, I break them up in genres. You’ve got your ’70s stuff like Chainsaw. Then you’ve got your ’80s stuff—Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. Those are all great—the first few especially.
